Beijing Olympian Courtney Atkinson will continue on his London Olympic campaign this weekend at the Tweed Parks Kingscliff Triathlon. Competition is set to be fierce with Joseph Lampe the September 2011 winner announcing his decision to participate to try and be the first to win the Nev Salmon Memorial Trophy two times.
QSMSports, the organisers of the Tweed Parks Kingscliff Triathlon are pleased to announce that this weekend will see the biggest triathlon in their history held in the coastal town. Michael Crawley said “ the weather is predicted at sunny and 27 degrees and with such a strong field of competitors, not just in the open but in all ages, it is a great opportunity to bring the whole family down and support the racers”.
Over the weekend there will be just under 900 participants in either the Saturday Fusion Cycles 62km Social Ride or Active Stride 5km Fun Run, or Sunday triathlon. This is a great response and all reports are that they love the course, love the town and love the atmosphere of the crew.
Day entries will be accepted on the Saturday only during registration for those extreme last minute hopefuls at the Community Hall, Marine Parade Kingscliff.
The Tweed Parks Kingscliff Triathlon is only in its 3rd year in 2012 and already has a great following. For more information or to follow what’s happening go to www.qsmsports.comor like us on facebook.
